Sister Dear 
"Sister Dear"
Laura McNeill

All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start. But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?
Convicted of a crime she didn’t commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish – time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows.
But Allie’s return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie’s claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already-fragile bond with family.
As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret—one that holds the key to Allie’s freedom.

As much as I want to post some good words about this book, I just can't.  There is absolutely nothing Christian about this book.  There were sexual innuendos and sometimes she didn't even bother to just imply, she just explained things disgustingly in detail, which I immediately stopped reading.  No thank you.  

Emma's dark side penetrated with evil that I could feel it coming from the pages.  It was quite disturbing.  

Along with the sexual innuendos, there was a lot of smoking, drinking and immorality.  

This book did not encourage me at all.  Quite the opposite.  I was highly disappointed and it just made me cringe all over.  I did not even finish the book.  Actually, I didn't finish reading half of it it was so appalling.  I will not be recommending this book to anyone, nor this author.

Thank you so much for your honest review of Code 13 and the content that was objectionable from a Christian perspective. As a Christian, I look for books that align with my values and my faith.

Keep on speaking the truth. The truth uncompromised is what's needed in this day of shifting sands.
